  1. Does anyone run with replica Yosi or Akra slip ons on their 6th gen? I have a 2002 with staintunes but I hate the look of them (they look very 90s) and the sound is not all that impressive either. Being on a budget, I was thinking to keep the staintunes pipe from the car to the muffler, but swap the muffler for something like what is linked below. Would love your opinions or how it experiences have been. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/100...&terminal_id=d66aa675de044d22a4568e9993fbe019
  2. I recently purchased a red 2002 VFR800 and I am absolutely loving it! It hides its age extremely well except for one thing (which tends to be an eye sore for me); the big outdated under tail exhausts. Another issue I have with my motorcycle is it is just no loud enough. I run with a Stain-tune cat back exhaust (without the baffles) and also have the stock exhaust. Now I know I can have a custom exhaust fabricated or use a more modern style rear exhaust setup (like repurposing a R1 or Ducati TOCE setup for the VFR) and this would fix both of my issues (make it louder and get rid of the dated look, but I am a university student on a pretty tight budget when it comes to throwing money on a bike. The alternative to this is running with a cheap slip on exhaust which comes out the side. The issue with this would be the gaping hole under the tail where the old cans used to be; this just makes the motorcycle look like something is off about it. What I am proposing is to get an affordable slip on and put that on the side, and fabricate a piece to go under the tail. I would fabricate this by first making a mold around the empty tail with cardboard, filling it with expanding foam, shaving it down to fit the bike, going over the foam with fibreglass, and finally paint matching with the Italian Red Honda paint. I could also have the fibreglass part painted at a shop if it would be cheaper. I have listed the rough price estimate and a getto mock of the final product (slip on not included in the mock up). I would love to get your guys opinion on this, the level of difficulty this would be, and if this is a pipe dream or something that is actually realistic and a good idea. Thanks. Cost Estimate: - Shorty Slip On Exhaust - $100 CAD - Expanding Foam - $10 CAD - Cardboard - Free - Sandpaper and Files - Free - Fibreglass Repair Kit - $40 CAD - Primer - $10 CAD - Honda Paint - $35 CAD - Clear Coat - $15 CAD - Total - $210 Motorcycle Mockup:
  3. I am located in the Greater Toronto Area and I am looking to sell both the stock exhaust and the Staintune exhaust for my VFR800. How much could I get for it? I would prefer a local deal so there is lower sick of getting scammed online, but I am open to also selling online and shipping it? I thought I would ask you guys before I post with a price that is too low or too high.
  4. I installed a set of Leo Vince pipes and at this point don't plan to put stock back on. Free if you pick it up in the Seattle area. Let me know if you want pictures.
  5. Hi Guys and Gals, So spoke to my nearest Honda motorcycle dealer Rick Gills Motorcycles and Paul from their parts and service was very helpful. Turns out my bike hasn't had the recall work carried out as shown by a lack of punch/stamp below the J on the head stock VIN stamp. As shown below. There should be a dot punched/stamped there below the J if the recall work has been carried out. So if any of the Aussie 6th geners are reading that's what to check if you have a bike with a VIN between JH2RC46U*2M400005 to JH2RC46U*5M700241. (Don't know if the mark is standard across the world/regions). So the part(s) have been ordered and I'll get a call in a week or 2 to book it in for the work. On the exhaust front I got some great feedback (for once ) with Gumtree. A couple of interstate riders willing to help out but shipping would have defeated the purpose of keeping the cost down. Ended up getting a pair off of a great bloke named Simon locally on Monday for a 100 buckaroos. Local exhaust shop said $25 a side to weld the ends back on so I got to it last night as shown. I marked approximately 6mm in from the centre of the weld to cut with the hack saw. Sorry about the photo quality. A bit of persuasion and BFI and I got it out.. Got the other side done and called it a night. In total it took about 1 hour and a half and a few beers. I dropped the cans off at the exhaust shop this morning, as they are flat out and my job is no worth much to them it could take a day or 2. I'll be annoyed if I can't try them by the weekend. I'll try to get some audio recording as well to put up. Thanks for taking the time to check it out. Cheers.

    Little audio clip of the Delkevic high mount 18" SS after I got it installed. Definitely a deeper note and sexier look.

    Swapped out the OEM muffler for a Vance and Hines SS2R, about 3.5 lbs lighter and sounds SO good. Plus I took the top box off for a little while, and I put the solo cowl back on.

  14. I've actually been trying to figure out how to quiet down my exhaust since I got the bike. I've already repacked the mufflers (they needed it) and wrapped some of the horible PO welding (all straight pipes cut at angles and welded together to make bends under the bike) and it still sounded like it came from a race track. Don't get me wrong, I like me some good exhaust note, but this was so much that I wouldn't ride it across a parking lot withough earplugs. So I'd been thinking, I need something to divert more of the airflow through the packing and less straight through the middle of the muffler. I was thinking of getting one of the guys that I work with to weld a washer on the end of a short section of pipe that would fit inside the muffler but not go past the stop it has in the middle. Then, as I was rooting around looking for some useable section of pipe in my garage, I found it. . . A Bicycle Stunt Peg It was perfect. A bit heavy, and I'd like to put some holes in the side of it (which I probably won't be able to do since it's really sturdy) but it works how I wanted it too. By the way, the exhaust is still lounder than I want, but it's closer. I might post some pictures of it when I pull it apart to redo it.
